THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA recently entered the studio to record a new EP for a tentative late summer release. Vocalist Mike Hranica told the Alternative Press about the effort, "We have about two weeks to do an EP. We haven't really told anyone about it, so I'm not going to give away what the concept is, but it's going to be something really fun.

"A lot of bands do cover albums just for fans to enjoy and kind of laugh at, and it's going to be something kind of like that — fun, but not covers. It's not going to be a lot of full-length material, like what our next full-length will be. It's going to be… I hate to use the word 'brutal,' but maybe something along those lines."

2009 proved to be a breakthrough year for the young Christian metalcore band that has developed a mainstream buzz and secular cred. Beginning with a 43-date, completely sold out headline tour in spring 2009, THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA — vocalist Hranica, guitarist/vocalist Jeremy DePoyster, guitarist Chris Rubey, bassist Andy Trick, keyboardist James Baney, and Daniel Williams on drums — went on to a main-stage slot on the Vans Warped Tour, and co-headlined (with ALL THAT REMAINS) the 27-date, fall '09 Napalm & Noise tour.
